Delegates arriving, press passes flashed around. Volunteers wait hand and foot to assist where possible. This is the scene at the 17th Highway Africa Conference, the largest gathering of African journalists in the world.
The topic of this year's conference was, "Speaking truth to power?"Media,Politics &Accountability.
Highway Africa is an opportunity to network with journalists from around the continent.
The Highway Africa Conference reminds journalists that in order to speak truth to power, we as journalists need to speak truth to ourselves.
As a aspiring journalists myself, I feel that the conference has added value to my studies and I will not forget the valuable discussions that took place.
